Reverend Roger L. Story

National Children's Prayer Congress
Washington, DC

Date of Prayer: 08/04/2017

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Heavenly Father, we come in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We thank You for the Biblical foundations which undergird our Nation.

We ask Your Holy Spirit's presence be very real in this House, giving counsel and wisdom when asked, comfort and conviction when needed. May Congress, and we, the people, bring honor and glory to Your name, as we confess our sins and ask for Your unmerited favor.

We pray this very day Congress will make a commitment to be responsible to You, O God, for actions that reflect godly character as an example to our children and a personal commitment to uphold God's desire for the life of our Nation's children, through the words Congress proclaims and decisions they make.

We now humbly ask that, in Your mercy, You will heal our land, not just on the surface, but deep down to our very core.

We pray in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
